I thought this might be of interest to some of the MDC readership.
1. Goals and Requirements
The primary objective of the NCS is to conduct a national longitudinal study of environmental influences (including physical, chemical, biological, and psychosocial) on children's health and development. These factors include environmental exposures (with a broad definition of environment) and biological/genetic contexts. The Study objectives stated in the Children's Health Act of 2000 include: (1) Evaluate the effects of both chronic and intermittent exposures on child health and human development; (2) investigate basic mechanisms of developmental disorders and environmental factors; (3) incorporate behavioral, emotional, educational, and contextual consequences to enable a complete assessment of the physical, chemical, biological and psychosocial environmental influences on children's well-being; (4) gather data from diverse populations of children including prenatal exposures; and (5) consider health disparities among children.
